“The role of Gregor requires a fit and athletic singer to cope with the physical demands. Singing with full-voiced strength across his range, baritone Simon Lobelson brilliantly depicts Gregor’s gradual physical adjustment to his insect-like transformation. Alternately scuttling around the stage in all fours, climbing up the walls and hanging upside down from the ceiling, he conveys Gregor’s increased desperation and perverse enjoyment at his condition.”
